The all-inclusive Mediterraneo hotel provides a seaside holiday away from the city centre, in an unsophisticated setting. Adequatey equipped, with rooms that offer decent comforts, the hotel nevertheless lacks too much character to make guests forget how far away the beach is (1,300 ft).

    Location 4.89 /10

    The Mediterraneo hotel is located 3,300 ft away from the lively town of Hersonissos and 15 mi east of Heraklion airport. Set back from the other hotels of the seaside resort, its location is not very handy because it is too far from both the beach and the town centre. Moreover, it is located just next to a noisy road.

    Accommodation 6.45 /10

    There are three types of accommodation available: double standard rooms (280 sq ft), but also junior suites (355 sq ft) and villas (almost 600 sq ft). They are all bright and spacious and their bathrooms have either a bathtub or a shower. Amenities include a refrigerator, a hair-dryer, a satellite television and individual air-conditioning.The hotel has eight villas (with private pools) that have a maximum capacity of up to 5 guests. However, there is nothing to block the view from one villa to another which means that the private pools aren't so private after all. The balconies are semi-circular, but their railings are so high that you won't really be able to enjoy the view, despite the fact that (mismatching) garden furniture is provided. The view from these balconies either gives on to the sea, the mountains, or sometimes the road.

    Overview 6.20 /10

    The hotel's architecture is not very attractive: several little blocks house the Mediterraneo's 300 rooms, and olive trees are planted in the very few areas dedicated to greenery, as a discreet reminder of the hotel's Cretan location. The hotel has a large and pleasant swimming pool pleasantly surrounded by palm trees, which unfortunately stand in the way of the view of the sea. The hotel has actually got two pools and another two dedicated to children, with deckchairs and parasols laid out around them. There is no mini-club here so children will have to make do with a modest playground.

    Food and drink 6.20 /10

    Meals are served in a buffet restaurant with a basic setting and ordinary furniture. A window which looks directly on to a wall rather than the sea can only confirm this hotel's lack of excellence. The hotel restaurant's menu rotates on a fortnightly basis, with a choice of four main course dishes and four starters, of Greek, Cretan and international inspiration. As this is an all-inclusive hotel, we thought that the choice of snacks served at the snack bar was too limited.

    To know

    The hotel was built in 2001 and renovated in 2008; its clientele is generally British, French and German. As this hotel was created in response to mass tourism, its layout is not very well thought out. The beach is 1,300 ft from the hotel and you will have to walk across an expressway to get to it, thanks to a moderately safe passageway. The hotel does not organise many events other than the Cretan theme nights and shows twice a week. In regards to relaxation, the hotel offers an unpretentious well-being centre equipped with a sauna and a jacuzzi.

      Perched up on the slopes in the outskirts of Hersonissos, Crete's nightlife capital, the Hersonissos Village makes the most of its position outside the noisy centre. Set in verdant surroundings and benefitting from superb panoramic views of the coast, what really impressed us about the establishment was the Cretan style of the guest rooms, especially in the older buildings. Bear in mind that there is no mini-club for children here. The proximity of the sea and (small) beaches makes this a sure but unextravagant holiday destination.

      The Hara Ilios is a family-oriented, old fashioned establishment that is a bit withdrawn from the sea but that has a lot of charm. The amenities are modest, to avoid saying Spartan, especially in the guest rooms. The Cretan village atmosphere is particularly enjoyable and the hotel provides a good starting point to set off on many an expedition into the marvels of the island of Crete.

      This hotel, in the centre of Hersonissos, does not live up to its promise of a luxury stay, and it is surrounded by an unattractive urban landscape. In short, the Hersonissos Palace, which offers both the half-board and the all-inclusive option, is in serious need of renovation work if it wishes to reclaim its luxury status.

      Don't be misled by the grand name of the Kosta Mare Palace & Spa: it is a basic, all-inclusive hotel which is well-maintained but certainly not luxurious. Its many facilities raise it to four-star status, but the setting is starkly lacking in character.
